Radical Alert started this petition to President, Illinois Student Government President Connor Josellis and

“I want to state publicly and unequivocally that acts and expressions of anti-Semitism are acts and expressions of hatred and discrimination that are in direct opposition to our core values. Bias and prejudice are antithetical to the educational foundations of our university and hurtful to our entire community.”– Chancellor Robert J. Jones

Swastikas found on campus. An anti-Semitic presentation given to Housing staff. Now, an anti-Semitic resolution is being introduced to Student Government on a Jewish holiday, clearly excluding the Jewish community from the discussion.

We cannot allow the continuing spread of anti-Semitism on campus. We are proud to have an ally in Chancellor Robert Jones, who boldly stood up for the Jewish community and denounced anti-Semitism and discrimination in all forms in a university-wide email to students and staff.

We thank Chancellor Jones for his unwavering support of Jewish and minority students on campus.

Hate and discrimination has NO PLACE on UIUC’s campus. Allowing anti-Semitism to continue to spread will only further incite hate, fear, and anger among the UIUC community. We must denounce discrimination on every level and promote a community which celebrates—not victimizes—cultural and religious differences.

Join us in thanking Chancellor Jones for standing up to hatred at UIUC!
